Coming to grips with C++11 and C++14 is more than a matter of familiarizing yourself with the features they introduce (e.g., auto type declarations, move semantics, lambda expressions, and concurrency support). The challenge is learning to use those features effectively—so that your software is correct, efficient, maintainable, and portable. That’s where this practical book comes in. It describes how to write truly great software using C++11 and C++14—i.e. using modern C++. Topics include: The pros and cons of braced initialization, noexcept specifications, perfect forwarding, and smart pointer make functions The relationships among std::move, std::forward, rvalue references, and universal references Techniques for writing clear, correct, effective lambda expressions How std::atomic differs from volatile, how each should be used, and how they relate to C++'s concurrency API How best practices in "old" C++ programming (i.e., C++98) require revision for software development in modern C++ Effective Modern C++ follows the proven guideline-based, example-driven format of Scott Meyers' earlier books, but covers entirely new material. "After I learned the C++ basics, I then learned how to use C++ in production code from Meyer's series of Effective C++ books. Effective Modern C++ is the most important how-to book for advice on key guidelines, styles, and idioms to use modern C++ effectively and well. Don't own it yet? Buy this one.

"What's the best way for one thread to notify another that an event has taken place? The traditional approach is to use a condition variable, but that requires a mutex, and for simple event communication, that seems like overkill: no data requires synchronized access. An alternative is to use a shared flag, but that requires polling on the part of the thread waiting for notification. As of C++ 11, an interesting new option is the use of a void future. Like the approach based on condition variables, the task waiting for notification truly blocks--no polling is required. Like the approach based on a shared flag, there's no need for a mutex. The approach even makes it possible for the notifying thread to throw an exception that the waiting-to-be-notified thread can catch. However, a design based on void futures has costs and is constrained by restrictions that developers must keep in mind when choosing among these event-communication strategies. In this webcast, Scott Meyers covers the pros and cons of void futures as a mechanism for event communication among threads. It's based on information in chapter 7 ("The Concurrency API") of his best-selling new book, Effective Modern C++."--Resource description page.
Over 100 recipes to help you overcome your difficulties with C++ programming and gain a deeper understanding of the working of modern C++ About This Book Explore the most important language and library features of C++17, including containers, algorithms, regular expressions, threads, and more, Get going with unit testing frameworks Boost.Test, Google Test and Catch, Extend your C++ knowledge and take your development skills to new heights by making your applications fast, robust, and scalable. Who This Book Is For If you want to overcome difficult phases of development with C++ and leverage its features using modern programming practices, then this book is for you. The book is designed for both experienced C++ programmers as well as people with strong knowledge of OOP concepts. What You Will Learn Get to know about the new core language features and the problems they were intended to solve Understand the standard support for threading and concurrency and know how to put them on work for daily basic tasks Leverage C++'s features to get increased robustness and performance Explore the widely-used testing frameworks for C++ and implement various useful patterns and idioms Work with various types of strings and look at the various aspects of compilation Explore functions and callable objects with a focus on modern features Leverage the standard library and work with containers, algorithms, and iterators Use regular expressions for find and replace string operations Take advantage of the new filesystem library to work with files and directories Use the new utility additions to the standard library to solve common problems developers encounter including string_view, any , optional and variant types In Detail C++ is one of the most widely used programming languages. Fast, efficient, and flexible, it is used to solve many problems. The latest versions of C++ have seen programmers change the way they code, giving up on the old-fashioned C-style programming and adopting modern C++ instead. Beginning with the modern language features, each recipe addresses a specific problem, with a discussion that explains the solution and offers insight into how it works. You will learn major concepts about the core programming language as well as common tasks faced while building a wide variety of software. You will learn about concepts such as concurrency, performance, meta-programming, lambda expressions, regular expressions, testing, and many more in the form of recipes. These recipes will ensure you can make your applications robust and fast. By the end of the book, you will understand the newer aspects of C++11/14/17 and will be able to overcome tasks that are time-consuming or would break your stride while developing. Style and approach This book follows a recipe-based approach, with examples that will empower you to implement the core programming language features and explore the newer aspects of C++.
This book outines the aims listed in the National Criteria for Modern Languages, which appears in all GCSE language syllabuses. It examines the changes these have brought about in course and lesson planning and content, and the teaching of the various language skills. Detailed descriptions of teaching techniques are provided and each chapter contains a further reading list to help both established and trainee teachers review and develop their classroom practice.
Presents a collection of tips for programmers on ways to improve programming skills.
Effective Learning and Teaching in Modern Languages offers insights from the latest research into learning and teaching a language, and also outlines innovative teaching techniques, covering all the critical subjects including: the demands made of students and staff in modern languages the four language skills assessment, grammar, vocabulary and translation technology-enhanced learning residence abroad subdisciplines such as business, area, cultural and literary studies, and linguistics professional development. Providing both a clear overview of the discipline and a wealth of techniques, practical advice and useful resources, this book will be welcomed by lecturers or tutors new to the profession and experienced lecturers wanting to keep up with the latest developments and improve their students' learning.
